Default Solar Eclipse of the Sun 2015 in UK

Hi Guys,
Just thought I'd mention this but on 20th March this year, we are going to experience a near total eclipse of the Sun in the UK !
It will happen on Friday 20th March, starts at 8.20am, Maximum 9.32am, Last contact 10.41am.
The last time this happened in the UK was 1961 and the next will be in 2090.
Of course this will all depend on weather !!!!

NEVER LOOK AT THE SUN with a telescope
There are some quite inexpensive glasses on line now.
It will start in the southeast of the sky.
Finger crossed for the weather !!!
